Inspirational Women of the World Babushka Nesting Dolls

We have created a set of our beautiful nesting dolls with 5 significant and inspirational women of the world. Frida Kahlo, Lady Diana, Mother Teresa, Marie Curie and Aretha Franklin. We wanted to create something beautiful that could sit on a mantle, gift to a loved one or rest on your sons or daughters bedroom shelf to help educate and excite our little ones.

We have written and designed an easy to read colour coded book to accompany the dolls on why these women are heroic, memorable and inspirational. These are the stories we want to read to our children and only hope they will feel at least the smallest way we do about these amazing women. 

Key information is as follows:

  • 5 dolls in total consisting of Frida Kahlo, Lady Diana, Mother Teresa, Marie Curie and Aretha Franklin.
  • Informative booklet
  • Wooden structure
  • Eco Friendly paints used
  • Hand Illustrated designs
  • Not a toy - for display purposes only!
  • Choking hazard for young children
  • Size: Largest = 14cm, smallest= 4cm 

Please handle with care as the paint can be easily chipped. 

The babushka dolls may be a little hard to open at times given the temperature as wood is naturally reactive to different temperatures.

*Please note during warmer climates the dolls may temporarily swell and become tighter if you pop them up on each side this will open them rather than trying to twist them.

Excellent toy

Lovely for young girls - it was a great, much loved Christmas present! Would recommend

Loved the product but box arrived smashed

I ordered the iconic women nesting dolls as a Christmas gift for a friend and I absolutely love them but unfortunately the box arrived completely smashed. The box was so smashed I was unable to pull the drawer out of the box to retrieve the dolls. I had tear the box open but thankfully the nesting dolls themself were not damaged. The box they came in was a nice box so I would have loved to be able to gift them inside the box but other than that I was happy with my purchase.

Great quality present for my 7 years old niece
